Hemmings Motor News Blog

Hemmings Motor News has been around since 1954. We're proud of our heritage, but we're also more than the Hemmings full of classifieds that your father subscribed to. Aside from new editorial content every month in Hemmings, we have three monthly magazines: Hemmings Muscle Machines, Hemmings Classic Car and Hemmings Sports and Exotic Car.

While our editors traverse the country to find the best content for those magazines, we find other oddities related to the old-car hobby that we really had no place for - until now. With this blog, we're giving you a behind-the-scenes look at what we see and what we do during the course of putting out some of the finest automotive magazines you'll ever read.

Studebaker Museum and SAH select the world’s 10 most influential cars

They range in status from iconic to mundane and in age from ancient to fairly modern. Some seem relatively straightforward while others appear almost out of left field. Yet the 10 vehicles selected for the Studebaker National Museum’s latest exhibit share two traits: None are Studebakers, and all of them helped shape automotive history.

As opposed to many of the museum’s exhibits, 10 Cars That Changed the World, which opened last month, doesn’t feature cars selected by the museum’s staff. Instead, museum officials, working from the concept expressed in the exhibit’s title, enlisted the members of the Society of Automotive Historians to choose the 10 via ballot. They came up with about 70 suggestions, ranging from the 1939 Oldsmobile with its automatic transmission to the 1986 Ford Taurus with its aerodynamic design.

So, what are the 10 Cars That Changed the World?
